Last week women’s soccer travelled to Victoria, B.C. for the CIS championship, where they faced the Queen’s Gaels in the first round. Despite matching the two-time defending champions in shots and possession, Dal was unable to capitalize and fell 2-0. Determined to win their first consolation game the following day, the Tigers beat the Capers in a rematch of the AUS final with Kristy McGregor-Bales scoring to advance the team to play for fifth place. The black and gold took on Sherbrooke Saturday afternoon in a close match that was decided in the last five minutes with a goal by Bianca Jakisa. Congratulations to the team on an amazing season and their fifth-place finish at the CIS championship!
